Tejay van Garderen takes a second consecutive USA Pro Challenge title as Alex Howes wins a squeaker of a sprint in downtown Denver

Tejay van Garderen (BMC Racing) collected the final yellow jersey of the 2014 USA Pro Challenge on Sunday as Alex Howes (Garmin-Sharp) won stage 7, a 78-mile leg from Boulder to Denver.

It was a narrow victory for Howes, whose throw at the line made the difference in a photo finish with friend and training partner Kiel Reijnen (UnitedHealthcare). It was less so for van Garderen, who took the overall by more than 90 seconds over Tom Danielson (Garmin), and finished sixth in the finale.

“The team lit it up for me over Lookout, had me totally pegged the whole way over, but it’s kind of hard to drop me on my home mountain,” said an emotional Howes. “And they kept it [going] all the way to the line.”

“I really can’t emphasize enough how much guys like Phil Gaimon and Janier Acevedo and Caleb [Fairly] and even Tommy Danielson … those guys are just absolute weapons and they fired today. This is everything to me, everything.”

The break of the day went early, and it was a big one, containing Michael Rogers (Tinkoff-Saxo); Jens Voigt (Trek Factory Racing); Fairly; Cameron Wurf (Cannondale); Adam Phelan (Drapac); Jonny Clarke (UnitedHealthcare); Javia Megias (Novo Nordisk); Hugh Carthy (Rapha-Condor); Jesse Anthony (Optum-Kelly Benefit Strategies); Johnathan Freter (Jelly Belly); Tiago Machado (NetApp-Endura); and Ruben Zepuntke (Bissell Development).

Wurf dropped off as the others quickly built a gap of two minutes en route to Golden for the trip up Lookout Mountain, though it shed a few more riders along the way as Voigt and Rogers drove the pace, with only Machado, Megias, Zeputke and Carthy able to stay in their slipstream.

Behind, Garmin-Sharp was running the peloton, intent on discarding sprinters, in particular Elia Viviani, whose entire Cannondale team dropped out of the peloton to try to bring him back in time to contest the finale.

Voigt took the final mountain points of the 2014 Pro Challenge, leading a break that was now just five strong, Carthy having popped off the back. The escapees clung to a lead of some 90 seconds as they descended back toward Golden, where Voigt likewise took the first sprint points of the stage.

As the break raced past the Coors brewery its advantage was down to a minute, and the peloton was growing larger as riders caught back on following the descent of Lookout Mountain. UnitedHealthcare was helping Garmin with the chase.

Ahead, Voigt led the quintet across the line and onto the finishing circuit. On their second trip around first Voigt, then Rogers tried to crack the others as the bunch closed to within 40 seconds.

Voigt finally got it done in City Park, taking Megias with him for company. Rogers, Machado and Zepuntke sat up to await the catch.

Going under the red kite, 1km from the penultimate lap of the finishing circuit, the two leaders were looking over their shoulders to see the peloton just a couple dozen seconds behind.

The bunch let them dangle awhile, and then swept them up shortly after Voigt led the way into the final lap.

His teammate Riccardo Zoidl attacked as the catch came with just over five miles to race. Pawel Poljanski (Tinkoff) followed the Austrian road champion and the two linked up with less than three miles remaining.

Behind, BMC took up the pursuit and closed to within five seconds of the escapees, then shut them down. Poljanski went once again, then surrendered, and the bunch prepared for a mass dash to the line.

BMC was firmly in charge going under the red kite, with van Garderen sitting second wheel.

Then the race leader was briefly on the point as the sprinters launched for the line. Howes powered across the line just inches ahead of Reijnen with Michael Schär (BMC) third.

Howes and Reijnen train together, and the Garmin rider said they’re best friends.

“I hate losing to him, and I hate beating him,” Howes said. “I don’t know what to do with him. But it means a lot to me to be up on the podium with him.”

Reijnen, predictably, was less elated about how the finish played out, especially for teammate Ben Day, who will retire after the Pro Challenge.

“I’m broken-hearted for my guys,” he said. “You saw the way they rode out there. That was Ben’s last day as a bike racer, and he just left everything he had on the road for me. It feels a lot more emotional than winning on the first day.”

On the overall, van Garderen took the flowers by 1:32 over Danielson with Serghei Tvetcov (Jelly Belly) third at 1:45.

Nacer Bouhanni (FDJ.fr) won a chaotic sprint on Sunday to take stage 2 of the Vuelta a España, while Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) assumed the overall lead.

The 174km stage, run in hot, windy conditions, took the peloton from the Mediterranean port city of Algeciras to San Fernando on the southern Atlantic coast.

The course served up the category-3 Alto del Cabrito, which summited at 10.2km, and two intermediate sprints at 94.4km and 132.5km.

The day’s escape starred Francisco Javier Aramendia (Caja Rural) Jacques Janse Van Rensburg (MTN-Qhubeka), Valerio Conti (Lampre-Merida) and Romain Hardy (Cofidis).

The break built an advantage of five minutes at one point, but it was down to 30 seconds with 30km remaining as the bunch decided to settle their hash early with the wind growing ever stronger and a very difficult finish in the offing that included narrow roads, a roundabout in the final 3km and a series of left and right turns.

With the catch made, Cannondale, Giant-Shimano and FDJ all went to war in the hectic final kilometers, and it was Bouhanni who proved fastest at the line. John Degenkolb (Giant-Shimano) finished second with Roberto Ferrari (Lampre-Merida) third.

“We worked very hard for this,” said Bouhanni. “In the last moment we were in great position. It’s a great day for me and all of my team. You have to take your chances when you can. Each time I have a chance to win I will take it.”

On the overall, Valverde took the red jersey from teammate Jonathan Castroviejo. He now leads Nairo Quintana and Andrey Amador in a tie on time following Movistar’s victory in the opening team time trial.

“You always have to be at the front, to avoid crashes or splits in the peloton, and that’s why I am taking over the leader’s jersey,” said Valverde. “Tomorrow we’ll see if we work to defend the lead, or let it go with a breakaway.

“Perhaps there are some teammates who could take over the jersey. It’s clear Nairo [Quintana] is in good condition, and he’ll be better than me in the mountains. Now I am in the leader’s jersey, so let’s enjoy it, and then we’ll see what happens in the race.”

Monday’s third stage from Cadiz to Arcos de la Frontera sees the first serious climbing of the Vuelta with four category-3 climbs before a short uphill finish.

Tejay van Garderen (BMC Racing) extended his overall lead at the USA Pro Challenge on Saturday by crushing a rain-soaked edition of the Vail Time Trial that saw him shatter his own record.

The 10-mile race against the clock, which started in the ski town of Vail and climbed most of its namesake pass, was run under dark skies on wet roads. The climb began gradually, then steepened into a steady grind for the final three miles.

At the top, Michael Rogers (Tinkoff-Saxo) held the soggy hot seat with a finishing time of 26:06 as van Garderen started his own race of truth down below.

But in between Tom Danielson (Garmin-Sharp) was setting his own brisk pace, hitting the time check in 12:43, the fastest ride to that point.

“I’ll be honest. I was definitely a little bit insecure. I haven’t done a good TT this year,” he said. “I gotta think back to my last time trial in Tour of Suisse or whatever … it was nice to get that monkey off my back. Once I got out there I felt really strong … and the crowd was incredible. Colorado crowds are second to none.”

Van Garderen bettered Danielson’s mark by 20 seconds when he blazed through, but the battle continued.

Danielson blew Rogers out of the hot seat when he hit the line in 25:19, 47 seconds better than the Tinkoff time-trial specialist. But van Garderen did likewise to the Garmin climber, thundering home in 24:26, winning the stage and breaking his own record of 25:02 — with an average speed of 24.6 mph.

“I think I was assisted by a bit of tailwind, that helped. Rain and cold didn’t help. Whether or not I set the record, it was a win-win today,” said van Garderen. “Having experience on this course was huge. The first one I did, I blew sky high. On the second one, I was good, but the pacing was off. This one I was perfectly smooth the whole way.”

Danielson had to settle for second on the day at 52 seconds with Serghei Tvetcov (Jelly Belly-Maxxis) third at 1:08.

“Superman over here just came flying through,” said Danielson, referring to van Garderen. “He’s the best guy in the race. To be second to him is a big honor. I’m very, very happy with my performance today.”

On the overall, van Garderen confirmed his grip on the yellow jersey. Danielson had moved into second at 1:31, while Tvetcov sat third at 1:45. Rafal Majka (Tinkoff), who started the day in second overall, slipped to fourth at 1:48.

Movistar won the kickoff to the 2014 Vuelta a España on Saturday, a tricky team time trial, putting Jonathan Castroviejo into the first red leader’s jersey.

“We all nine rode to perfection,” said Castroviejo. “It was my honor to take the jersey, but this is a prize for the whole team — without my teammates, it would have been impossible.”

The first stage was a 12.6km TTT on a winding, technical course through the streets of Jerez de la Frontera, at the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula.

Cannondale proved a surpringly strong contender, setting a time that eluded the likes of Omega Pharma-Quick Step, Sky, and Orica-GreenEdge.

But the green machine was dethroned at last by the final team to start as Movistar covered the course in 14 minutes and 13 seconds, six seconds better than Cannondale. Orica-GreenEdge rounded out the podium in the same time.

“We have been preparing all season for a team time trial like this one,” said Castroviejo, who said the team started out carefully on the technical course.

“Our main goal was to not fall, because we have two leaders, so we started out being very careful, and we stayed together,” he said. “The end was perfect for us — we not only won, but took some important gains on our rivals. We never expected to win.”

However, the Vuelta’s first race leader declined to say whom Movistar would be trying to put into the final red jersey at this Vuelta — Giro d’Italia champion Nairo Quintana or Alejandro Valverde.

“Until we get to the mountains we don’t know who we will be supporting,” said Castroviejo.

Chris Froome found himself in a 27-second hole early on as Sky could manage only 11th on the day. Alberto Contador was 19 seconds down as Tinkoff-Saxo crossed seventh. But Trek Factory Racing rebounded nicely after crashing in training to hit the line fourth, nine seconds off Movistar’s winning pace.

“I’ve got to admit that we were all hoping for a better result,” said Froome. “But a difference of 30 seconds is not much. There are 21 days of racing. I’ll try to make up time wherever I can.”

Omega Pharma’s Rigoberto Uran said the team “was okay” with finishing fifth at 11 seconds back.

“I think we did a good TTT,” he said. “The course was quite technical with 22 roundabouts in a little more than 12 kilometers, and we must also remember that this is just the beginning of La Vuelta. We will see what happens in the next days. As usual the first few stages will be nervous and maybe the wind here in the South of Spain can also be a factor.”

Contador likewise called Tinkoff’s finish “a good result.”

“My heart was racing at 200bpm because I am missing a bit of form,” he said. The most important thing was to avoid mistakes, and to get back to racing. We rode together well, and did the best we could. It was a bit dangerous in a few places. The most important thing is to recover well.”

Sunday’s stage 2 is a relatively flat 174km leg from Algeciras to San Fernando.
